Coronation Street star teases future of Bernie's secret son story

Coronation Street spoilers follow.

Coronation Street star Jane Hazlegrove has teased newcomer Kit's next moves after Bernie found her secret son.

As her son Paul's health deteriorated, Bernie restarted the search for her youngest son Kit, who she gave up for adoption as a baby.

Kit initially hid his identity from Bernie, making it clear he didn't want anything to do with her, but recent episodes have seen them thrown together in unavoidable situations.

Hazlegrove (who plays Bernie Winter) shared the "huge guilt" her character has "managed to bury", and the impact of Kit's reluctance to let her into his life.

"I believe Bernie would love to begin building a relationship with Kit and try to fix all of her wrongs. Unfortunately Bernie has to accept that he's furious with her, and with good reason, so she must realise that a reconciliation might not be what he wants," said the actor.

"She has always imagined what he would be like but I think she perhaps realises that he's not as decent as she had hoped he would be so she also now needs to face the reality of what and who he is rather than the imagined son she's always kept in her head and heart for all of these years."

Hazlegrove discussed the potential for Kit's anger to damage her relationship with Gemma and Paul, claiming "Bernie definitely realises that this is now a possibility".

She continued: "Which isn't ideal given the horrible circumstances with Paul's illness and the timing is, of course, not great. Bernie knows she's got to play the hand she's now been dealt with the best she can and try to make amends.

"She also doesn't want to hurt the kids anymore than they already have been!"

Corrie recently announced nine key characters will take centre stage this June as "secrets unfold, lies are unearthed and love is put to the test". With Bernie taking one of those places, could there be a big commotion with Kit and his newfound siblings?

Coronation Street airs on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays at 8pm on ITV1 and streams on ITVX.
